This is the strange lights that were seen above Co. Galway, Ireland on 31 – 12 – 2015 at around 8:30PM. The loudest noise is a river, but if you ignore the sound .
I take a gander at the strange lights sighted over Ireland. UFOs or something else? I have seen a lot of activity in the skies here over the past 2 or 3 months. I finally caught some on camera here walking home down the Monread Road around .

I think that these are “Chinese Lanterns”. They are bright at the base and gradually fading towards the top. This is the classic appearance of them. Chinese Lanterns often flicker. This is caused by the candle flickering in the draft under the lantern. They are commonly reported as UFOs.
